In this chapter I will concentrate on the contractual aspects of employment from a theoretical point of view. In other words, I will be concerned with the nature of employment and whether it is best analysed in its present state in terms of the law of contract. I will leave until the next chapter normative, or prescriptive, issues regarding the extent to which, if employment is contractual, contract provides the best model for employment from the point of view of the parties to the relationship, and particularly if it allows employees to be given the degree of job security that is thought suitable in the modern world of work.
